Track His iPhone Location Without Installing Software

One of the easiest ways to track a cell phone without installing software is with the Find My Friends app that comes with every new iOS device.  The only trick is you'll need to have access to their phone for a couple minutes.  However, once it's setup the app is completely discrete.

Step 1:  "Share My Location" should be enabled from the settings of YOUR iPhone. You find this in the "Find My Friends" app.  Click on the bottom of the screen and the settings will open.

Step 2:  share their location with your iPhone.  From "Find My Friends" on their phone click "Add" in the top right corner.  Find your contact information and click "Send".   This will send a notification to your phone.

Step 3:  Accept the invitation on your phone.  From your phone you'll now have a message to accept the invitation.  Click "Accept".  Next you'll be prompted to share YOUR location with them.  Click "Don't Share" unless you want them to be able to see your phone as well.

Step 4:  Open "Find My Friends" at any time to see their current location.

Step 5:  Most folks don't even realize "Find My Friends" is built into their phone so they don't think to check it.  If you want to be 100% certain they don't you can hide the app on their phone.
